  • 22. Mobility – The changing face of business
  • 23. Mobility – The changing face of businessDo not want:
  • 24. Mobility – The changing face of businessMobile Strategy Challenges App or web? iPhone or Android (or BlackBerry or Windows Phone, or …)  Do I have to pay 2, 3, or more times for development? Getting your stuff on the device User Experience  Not just a sexy user interface  Install, data consumption, privacy, hygiene
  • 25. Mobility – The changing face of businessApp or Web? APP WEB  Generally more rich  No install barrier or marketplace  Can engineer to use less data  Careful caching required for NZ  Slight install barrier  Multi-browser/resolution issues  Marketplace acceptance issues Tips: Tips:  Use an experienced designer  Don’t try to emulate native apps  Design for the platform  Follow platform guidelines Create applications for your own unique requirements

Outrageous!
  • 28.

  • 33. Mobility – The changing face of businessIdeal Mobile Web Approach
  • 34. Mobility – The changing face of businessUser Experience Bad UX can torpedo the best app ideas  Surfacing in marketplace is (generally) dependent on reviews  Great UX can result in tons of free viral marketing New Zealand has some unique requirements  Expensive and sometimes intermittent data  Latency accentuated by international round trips Cross-compilers and frameworks often aren’t good  Forcing one platform’s paradigms on another is grating for users  The savings in dev time can result in cost via low user uptake
